France made it four wins out of four in the Women’s Six Nations after they beat Wales 35-5 in a bonus-point success in Cardiff on Friday.

This result ended Wales‘ hopes of lifting the trophy as France subsequently march towards a likely Grand Slam decider against England in Bayonne next week.

The Welsh, seeking to respond after their 58-5 Round Three hammering to England, were on the back foot from the outset and trailed 26-0 at the turnaround.

Laure Sansus scored again

French scrum-half Laure Sansus – the tournament’s leading try scorer – took her tally to six with a double, either side of wing Caroline Boujard and full-back Chloe Jacquet going over.

Les Bleues continued to dominate after the restart. Fly-half Jessy Tremouliere, who added the extras on three of the first four scores, converted her own 54th-minute try to further stretch the scoreboard.

Wales offered some resistance in the final 25 minutes and claimed a consolation try in the final moments through replacement flanker Sioned Harries.
